“Five Nights at Freddy’s-The Silver Eyes” is a story about a girl named Charlie having a reunion on the ten-year anniversary of her best friend’s death. Their friend was kidnapped from a children’s restaurant (much like Chuckie Cheese) called Freddy Fazbears Pizza and was presumed dead after missing for one year.
This book is based on a video game and written by the creator, Scott Cawthon. The novel is labeled in the young adult genre despite being full of gore. The main characters are teenagers even though the games main characters were always full grown adults.
Scott might have written them as teenagers since most of the games audience were teens to younger kids.
The plot takes place after the pizzeria is closed. Most readers expected it to be held during the first (or even the second) game. We wanted to be in the action, but that fell a little short. Most of the action happens at the beginning and end of the book.
The book is not as dark as the games themselves, or their back stories. The FNAF backstory is full of dead children and their bodies being stuffed into robots who are roaming at night to find their killer.
I felt a bit of dread when reading Charlie’s backstory but nothing nearly as close to the games story.
It also bothered me that it’s not part of the same story the games are a part of. So, after reading the whole thing, you don’t really get any new details about the game’s story, which was why I bought it in the first place.
This book gave me more questions than answers.
I can’t say I don’t recommend it for other fans to read because there are some parts which have the mood that FNAF has.
I enjoyed this book for the most part, but I just wish it was a little different. Worth a read, however.
